Kremlin: Medvedev, Obama speak about Mideast

MOSCOW — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and US President Barack Obama on Thursday discussed Iran's suspect nuclear program and the need to look for "non-standard" approaches to resolving problems in the Middle East, the Kremlin said.
Their telephone conversation, which the Kremlin said lasted for an hour and a half, came as the United States tries to build support for new sanctions against Iran.
The Kremlin said Medvedev briefed Obama about his trip this week to Syria and Turkey, where he had made clear Moscow's willingness to play an active part in efforts to bring peace to the Middle East.
